Subject: I'm Not a Bad Boy, But I Get Eaten by the Lion Anyway
This sign-language interpreted version of the hoary old Warner Bros. toon takes a somewhat more sensible approach. The cartoon is narrated, so they took out the original narration and replaced it with narration by the sign language interpreter. This avoids having the gags overexplained, though she does miss some gags, such as the two bucks and five cents gag. This is not always a bad thing, though, as the explanation for what made the wildcat wild is left out, and it would thoroughly puzzle anyone too young to remember 30s movie theater Bank Nights. Most interestingly, the interpreter plays the narrators role in chiding Egghead for teasing the lion. His usual line, Im a bad boy is left out, but the gag comes across anyway. This is to my mind one of the better of the sign-language interpreted toons Ive seen.
